AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) is an emerging display technology. OLED describes a specific type of ultra thin, ultra bright display technology which doesn't require a backlight, as the pixels will illuminate upon electrical activiation.

 
LED TV's are different to AMOLED in that they use Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) positioned behind a three colour panel to provide the backlighting that illuminates the picture you see on the screen. The LED backlights shine through the panel, which controls, on a pixel by pixel level, the colour and amount of light the screen displays, providing superior dynamic contrast ratio far above normal LCD technology.
